According to Kevin Fishbain of ProFootballWeekly, the Patriots will hold a private workout with Northwestern defensive lineman Corbin Bryant. The workout will take place next Tuesday. Bryant is a 6'4", 300 lb defensive tackle who projects to the defensive end spot in the Patriots 3-4 defense. According to the National Football Post, Bryant had an outstanding Pro Day performance:Bryant ran the 40-yard dash in 5.02 seconds, according to an NFC West scout.
The 6-foot-4, 298-pounder bench pressed 225 pounds 31 times as 28 NFL teams attended the workout.
He also turned in a 4.55 short shuttle, a 7.34 three-cone drill, a 27 1/2 inch vertical leap and an 8-6 broad jump.
An AFC East team has scheduled Bryant for a private workout next Tuesday.
I think we can safely assume the AFC East team that scheduled the private workout is the New England Patriots. Bryant was an Honorable Mention All-Big 10 last season, but up to this point, hasn't been on many draft radars. By the look of things, it seems like Bryant's strong performances could be changing that, and I wouldn't be surprised to see him as a late round selection come April, whether that be for the Patriots or some other team.
